KU’s Campbell Big 12 swim coach of year


After leading Kansas University to its highest Big 12 finish in school history, coach Clark Campbell has been named Big 12 Swim Coach of the Year.

Campbell led KU to a second-place finish at the conference championships and crowned the school’s first Big 12 individual champion: Chelsie Miller in the 400-yard individual medley.

“We started the process of bettering the program as a whole this year,” Campbell said. “Our team goal next year is to score over 700 points at the Big 12 Championships, which would be about a 100-point improvement from this season. That will help us close the gap on Texas. Our big goal is to bring more people to the NCAA Championships and a relay, as well. We graduated a lot of regular-scoring seniors, but we have a dynamite group of returners and freshmen that will contribute right away.”
